Welco0me to the opening day of The Exhibit: Velocity! on Saturday, January 12, 2019 All day at Discovery Museum, 177 Main Street (Route 27), Acton, MA 01720.
Love balls and ramps? Come experience Velocity! Balls, ramps, jumps, loops and physics fun! Race golf balls along winding, sloping, and looping tracks and explore how gravity, friction, speed, and acceleration affect the velocity and trajectory of moving objects. Five distinct activity areas, a Roller Coaster and Serpentine, Jump Track, Loop Track, Half-Pipe, and Dish. Demonstrate the speed, trajectory, velocity, and momentum of moving objects. Using golf balls, kids and their adults can create experiments and compare results with data visualization software that captures multiple test runs; animated definitions of key physics principles correspond to videos of real-world examples. Ribbon-cutting will be held at noon. Free with admission.
